Mysuru: Former Chief Minister and Opposition leader Siddaramaiah critisized disqualified MLA A H Vishwanath for demanding to make Hunsur a separate district.


Addressing a meeting of Kuruba community members from Hunsur on Sunday, Siddaramaiah said, “Why Vishwanath, who has been politically active since when D Devaraja Urs was CM, did not raise the demand then?”

He further added, “When I was CM, Vishwanath had written a letter to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, accusing me of indulging in corruption. I had questioned Vishwanath over this, but he never gave me an answer.”

Referring to a statement made by Vishwanath that he had played a key role in making him CM, Siddaramaiah said, “I became the CM because of the people of my statte. Vishwanath was not even an MLA at the time. H P Manjunath, then-Hunsur MLA, had supported me.”
